Problem with cinematics/CG effects ingame

Ok, first of all, I don't actually have the game yet, I've only just ordered it (4-14 days! Keep your fingers crossed for for me that it come in four...or less) This is just a problem I noticed in the demo, so I figured I'd get some council on it now so I'd be prepared once I got the game. Now, on to the problrm, you see when the opening for the demo comes on, it doesn't play it just show the first second of it or so, stretched into four sgments containg the lines of solid color for the game basically it looks like someone took the cinematics(/ingame CGI effects) stretched them out and put them through a paper shredder. I'm already aware of the patch and improved launcher, so if it's corrected by those let me know. However if this is some unique problem that I have, I'd really appreciate some advice. I'm running Windows XP.

Thanks, this stuff sounds like it'll fix ALL the problems I noticed with the demo, I'm not going to use it all at once, I'll install the patch and stuff before I go to extremes, but it'll help either way!

I wouldn't worry too much if the demo doesn't work properly. The demo was actually released quite a while before the final game, and both the engine and game itself is unfinished — even some of the music isn't that in the final game.

So it's pretty much 50/50 whether or not you get the problem with the final game, and that doesn't include stuff fixed by the patch and launcher.
